    Columbus Day Parade 2019
    The celebration of the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas


    The biggest celebration of American-Italian culture in the world, the Columbus Day parade attracts around a million spectators and 35,000 marchers each year. For over 73 years, Fifth Avenue is filled with Italian flags and people dressed as Christopher Columbus. Marching school bands, professional musicians, and traditional folk groups perform on their way from Midtown to Upper East Side, creating a lively atmosphere.

    Good time for white people to pay reparations at the Indian Reparations collection sites located on many reservations where many whites folks donate with a smile.
